We stayed here for a weekend early December. You couldn't have a better location - it's located right in the middle of town by the shops and just up the road from the Christmas markets. The rooms are very modern and clean and beds are very comfortable. We were upgraded to a larger room so had more space - but... More

Although the location of the hotel was great, I found it to be out of my standard comfort zone. The room was incredibly small, although I was told that the other rooms are larger. The breakfast was less than satisfactory for such a pricey hotel. I've went to the hotel bar a couple of times and was thrown aback with... More

The otel is located at the heart of Nantes near the theatre hall. The historical building of the hotel stands since 1790s. The painting at the entrance is fascinating. But the inside is decorated in a modern way. The room i stay is small but well and effectively designed. The people are happily after. The breakfast is standard like most... More

Very good hotel right in the centre of Nantes. Hotel entrance is disappointing but once past that the hotel is in very good condition and very good value for money. The car park is tiny and not the easiest to find but the staff were exceedingly helpful and the room was excellent.

The location is great, right in the historical district and right on the “Green Line” which we used to explore the city over two days. Staff was wonderful. The people at reception were eager to give us a map, point out points of interest, make restaurant recommendations, and in general, be as helpful as possible. We were amused because every... More

First off, this hotel is in the middle of a a pedestrianised area in Nantes and you need a code to get passed the bollards. The hotel will email this to you. As others have said, the car park entrance is not easy to spot and tight to get in. The staff were very helpful, and friendly. The hotel is... More

Stylish interior in an old building. Great location in the centre of Nantes beside the "Voyage à Nantes" itinerary and beside great upmarket shops. Free wifi. Excellent breakfast. Very warm and friendly service. Will return. Note that it's in a pedestrianised zone - we travelled by train.

A welcome surprise how comfortable this hotel was! Bright and modern with a well equipped and very clean room. Car park is very small and difficult to find but we managed guided by the hotel reception, apparently it is mainly for disabled guests. There is paid, secure parking close by. Definitely need a satnav for this hotel. Would return!
